Sebastian and RMcGuinn

 

continued



McGuinn's not sure what songs he's going to play: "My wife and I always work out the set list at lunch the day of the show. It'll be a mix: probably some tracks from the Byrds and some from my solo albums plus some traditional songs." Sebastian won't be sure until he gets onstage: "I know what I start with and I know what I end with, and other than that, I really don't know - some oldies, some Spoonful, some folk, maybe some jug band - those're always fun."

Of course, McGuinn'll be playing his trademark Rickenbacker twelve-string. "People want to see the Rickenbacker," he says, "though I always bring a Martin twelve-string, a Martin seven-string, and a banjo along, too." Sebastian says that in addition to some harmonica and a little autoharp, he'll be playing "a beautiful Heritage guitar from Kalamazoo and a baritone guitar that looks like a Telecaster but with a longer neck and thicker strings to give some of the songs a little extra bounce."

As always, McGuinn's on the road with his wife, Camilla, who also serves as tour manager and roadie: "We do about fifty to seventy-five dates a year. We drive a high-top van, and we'll go a great distance for a nice venue. She's wonderful." After a couple of gigs with McGuinn, Sebastian'll be doing a tour with mandolin master David Grisman. "We're going to be out there like a couple of teen boys," he giggles. "It's great!"
